One of the worst finales ever.
I've lost faith in Emily / Amanda. She's making too many STUPID mistakes.
Lydia comes to the house with the ONE picture that can prove Amanda was at the party.
Emily has SKILLS in Martial Arts right? Why didn't she use her reflexes to snatch the picture from Lydia's hand and run inside the house to burn it? How much of a fight could Lydia have put up? With the evidence gone what could Lydia have done? I'm pretty sure there wasn't a duplicate.
And then on deck, she has yet ANOTHER chance to grab the photo from Victoria's hand and shred it and toss it into the ocean destroying the evidence so that she wouldn't have had to say a word.
For someone that's supposed to be so smart she's doing things that only a rank amateur would do.
How ridiculous can the writers and Director of Revenge get?
How does the dress get completely OFF of Emily?
How many miles out to sea is the ship?
How does a dress that would probably SINK once it got soaked, make it all the way to the beach, not to mention, that it washed up only few feet away from the area of the beach where Aiden had to SWIM to; and the part that's completely ludicrous is that the dress arrives only a few moments AFTER Aiden!
How is it that the dress was completely laid out flat (like being placed by film crew) after being tossed by waves?
This episode was DUMB!
I gave the episode a 3 because I couldn't give it a 2.5.
Sad to see the inevitable demise of Brody. I wonder will his daughter ever know that he did a good thing in the end?
Also sad is that Damian Lewis can't seem to find a series that he can be a part of for any length of time. I really liked him in the short lived NBC show called Life along with the girl with the radiant smile, Sarah Shahi that seems to have found a home on Person of Interest.
I hope that Damian Lewis lands on something good.

Sorry to say I can't stand with you on that one. I was so sick of Neverland and Pan I wanted to quit the show.
Good riddance, as far as this fan is concerned.
But on the lighter side we did get Tinkerbell and amending my statement a tiny wee bit, one or two flashbacks would be okay I guess.
Wow, things are now a bit complicated.
On the day Bill's baby is born he confesses his love or Virginia.
On this very same day, Ethan calls (whilst looking at the Pacific Ocean) to propose to Virgina.
Later on this day, Bill fesses up to something he can't live without, Virginia.
What to do, what to do...
This episode was an emotional winner.
While I really like this show, it's hardly the best television show on basic TV. Sometimes the writing of this show has annoyed me to such extent that I considered dropping it. For me, the eye candy that has pulled me through the less than enchanting writing faux pas.
The writing on the show, at times is very over the top and campy in order to increase the 'dramatic elements' to where it becomes ludicrous.
In this episode, when Nikita and Michael first come on to the scene where the truck is (bear in mind that we have a world war at stake) they hesitated firing on the people (and remember they had automatic weapons) and the truck so that the truck could 'get away' and travel at 'super slow speed' so that Nikita could 'catch up' with it.
Scenes like this annoy me as much as those scenes (in any show) where the pursuer actually gets to the elevator door as it is shutting; only to slam his hand against the door AFTER it closes - when in fact, IF the pursuer had actually put his hand IN the path of the closing elevator doors, the safety mechanism would have stopped the doors from closing!
The more realistic and MUCH scarier / dramatic element would be that the pursuer would be running full tilt and just, not getting TO the door in time; about 3 feet away and can't stop doing a full body slam into it THAT'S WAY MORE REALISTIC!.
This show is full of campy dramatics like this.

I stopped watching HOD midway through season 2. Couldn't, as much as I like Rachael Bilson, take it anymore.
Hopefully it will die a quick death so she and the other noteworthy cast members can find new projects.
The writing on HOD is horrible.
